N.B. the following post was written originally in September 2010
I’m late in compiling my Colours of August for Sue’s annual calendar. This is a most interesting series of monthly colours in various parts of the world. For other entries see Sue at Life Looms Large.
I spent the first 2 weeks of August in Seattle (latest grandchild baby Sean was born August 1) and then I flew back to Dublin for the final packing up. WE returned to Seattle August 28. So I’ll select a few pictures from these 2 locations 6,000 miles apart.

an iconic sight in Seattle – such an environmentally friendly city with its big employer Amazon
a few of my plants along the path to our front door, note the mums – a sign of the season
the apples are getting riper
Now we cross the miles to Dublin

goodby Slinki, our wonderful cat, oblivious to our impending departure. That was sad!
